I went to the eye doctor this afternoon because I was wearing my last pair of contacts.  I use the extended wear “sleep in them for 30 days and dispose” kind of contacts.  I think I’d been wearing that pair for close to 3 months.  So anyway, I went and things seemed alright.  It had been nearly 4 years since I got my eyes checked, but they hadn’t been bothering me overly much so I didn’t think anything of it.  Turns out my Rx has changed significantly – my eyesight has improved.  However, the pressure in my eyes is quite high and this frequently means glaucoma.  I’m going back on 2/15 for a full battery of tests to determine if there is indeed something wrong.  So I’m going to go crawl into bed with a book and hide the rest of the night.  See you all tomorrow.
